PDF Merge for Mac

CNET Editors' review

With its rather basic but intuitive drag-and-drop interface, PDF Merge for Mac successfully combines several PDFs into one file. The program performs only one task, but does it quickly and without any problems.

The free trial version's basic menu lacks any advanced graphics or a user tutorial. Fortunately, the design is intuitive and well thought out. The trial limits the number of PDFs combined to three, but the full version of PDF Merge for Mac with no limits can be purchased for $18.99. A medium-size window has one area where files can be dragged and dropped. Users can also manually select files to import via a "+" and "-" set of buttons at the bottom, which opens a separate finder window. As files are added, the main area lists them by their title and their location. A clearly-labeled button initiates the combination process and is very easy to find. The overall process completes quickly, and the output images match the originals in their resolution. After the process ends, the user can select the location and name of the new file with a window that pops up.

PDF Merge for Mac works well at combining multiple PDFs and is easy to use. It may prove a lifesaver for users working with large numbers of PDF documents.

    "Simple - but easy to use"

    June 16, 2012  |   By Cindy_T

    Version: PDF Merge 2.6

    Pros

    I love this app! I was about to cough up $400+ for Adobe, but decided to give this app a try. This app saved me over $400. It's incredibly simple to use, and works flawlessly.

    Cons

    None that I have experienced.

    Summary

    Thank you!!!

    "Basic Flaw: changes everything into pixels"

    January 13, 2012  |   By gctwnl2

    Version: PDF Merge 2.6

    Pros

    None. It effectively does not do the job as it not only merges the PDFs but also damages them.

    Cons

    Changes nice infinitely scalable vector images into pixel images

    Summary

    Unusable

    "Quick and easy. Even merged PDFs with Tiff files!!"

    May 20, 2010  |   By jazzman509

    Version: PDF Merge 2.4.1

    Pros

    Drag and drop to load files. PDFs can be rearranged or deleted before merging. Price is reasonable, if all you want to do is merge. Note: Trial version will only merge a max of 3 pages, so don't be alarmed if your test merge only shows 3 pages.

    Cons

    It would be nice if this program could split PDFs as well. But it never promised to do that, so who can complain?

    Summary

    No need to buy a more expensive program if all you want to do is merge PDFs. If you want more options, keep looking.
